Pet Allergy and Dermatology
There are many conditions that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your best friend to suffer, and neither do we!
Comprehensive Pet Allergy Assessment
The allergy and dermatology services at Westside Pet Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.
At each appointment, we’ll examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We’ll then create a customized preventative care strategy that will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management, and anything else we deem relevant.
To help your companion feel better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by looking at your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings, and biopsies provide us with the answers we need to move forward with treatment.
Some Dermatological Issues We Assist With
Allergies (Food and/or Environmental)
Infections (Acute or Chronic)
Finally, annual visits give all of us at Westside Pet Hospital a chance to truly get to know you and your pet. Developing a relationship with you and forging a bond with your animal friend is integral to the care we provide.
Once we’ve diagnosed the underlying problem, the next step is determining how to treat it best. Depending on the situation, we may prescribe something as simple as a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of multiple treatment methods.
